Gays of the Union unite! Leigh and Ellie are back for a sixth season of the little lesbian podcast that could. We are excited to recap all the biggest gay moments from the past year. Almost every show we talk about has already been cancelled, but we need to talk about them anyway!
We kick off with discussing First Kill which was absolutely feeding our Buffy roots. Lesbians will always love a vampire and we are absolutely here for the cheesiness of it all. Then, we get into Gentleman Jack which was completely chaotic lesbian drama the entire season. There is just nothing more relatable than having a totally unhinged ex that is perpetually in your life. Next we dive into Our Flag Means Death, which is everything we could want from a pirate show, because pirates are canonically gay and you cannot tell us otherwise. Then we get into Only Murders in the Building, which finally fulfills our gay dreams in Season 2 by putting Mabel together with Cara Delevingne’s character. We are really loving this trend in recent media where the queerness is just accepted and not a big deal. No one really has to worry about coming out and the story doesn’t revolve around that.
We would be remiss if we didn’t discuss Killing Eve and the catastrophic finale. We were shocked to be thrown backwards into the BYG trope after coming so far in queer media since the horrors of 2016. Next we get into Yellowjackets which has some very strong queer representation. We finish up by talking about The Wilds which we are in denial about losing just as we were getting closer to seeing Leah and Fatin finally get together.
